The state’s first child friendly police station was launched today by ADGP Gurpreet Deo, who has additional charge of Women and Child Affairs. She said it would help provide an environment to the children where they would be able to express themselves without any hesitation.

The objective behind setting up such a police station was to ensure that every child, hether involved in a crime or a witness to it, has proper and timely access to justice.

Deo said the police station had been set up in coordination with the Bachpan Bachao Andolan. All type of sports activities, toys, books, wall paintings and other material had been made available to build a home-like atmosphere in the police station.

SSP Amneet Kondal said the juveniles would be dealt here with the cooperation of the Juvenile Justice Committee and the Child Welfare Committee.
